    What more can you tell me about the item you photographed here:

    It says "New York Standard Watch Co" with quarter marks around the edge of the dial. It appears to be an odometer possibly.

    Thanks...

    Sounds right. Marked "20 yards" at the top, 88 divisions, one full revolution would make one mile. Should be something clamped on a spoke to turn the star wheel.

    I believe odometer is the correct answer. The device was mounted on a turn of the century motorcycle at the Barber Museum. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find the other images of the entire machine so that I could identify the maker of the bike.

    Same mountain range in 14072 and 14074? What/where are these/is this? Looks like a great place to go.

    I think this came up about 1 or 2 years ago. Gs and I arrived at this point during this game showing the same Mountains from the same vantage point. Here we are again!
    Grand Tetons NP, WY. The primary road East of the park that delivers to either here or the Southern approach to Yellowstone. Oxbow Bend is this spot on the river. Right off the road with a large gravel parking lot, it is a favorite of the motoring tourist with easy access. Can be crowded with photographers and my first introduction to combat photography.
    I can't recall the road but a search of Oxbow Bend will get you close.

    And it is stunning and worth every second.
